Artbeads is one of my favorite places to buy unique pendants for my jewelry creations. They have such a great selection that you can't find anywhere else. For example, they have wooden pendants painted on canvas. I have never seen anything like this anywhere else. Look what I created with the Vision Wood Pendant:

Place yourself inside a beautiful crashing wave with this wood pendant featuring a print of the painting "Vision" by artist Chris Pedersen. Whether you enjoy surfing, the beach or seascape artwork, you will love this mini-masterpiece. The pendant is paired with light green and brown faceted and round cat's eye beads.

Playing Around GIVEAWAY!!!!

My last post was about creating pendants out of dominoes. I think these are so fun for the spring/summer months that I've been playing around with wire wrapping the dominoes and making pins out of them. I haven't done too much wire wrapping to date and this is good practice for me. I think the wire wrapping and Sworovski crystal embellishments make these really stunning!!!

So, if you would like to WIN one of these beautiful pins all you have to do is:

1) leave me a comment about them (1 entry)
2) add my button to your blog (1 entry)
3) blog about this giveaway and leave the link in the comment section (1 entry)
4) follow my blog (1 entry)

So that's a total of 4 entries and a chance to win a unique piece of wearable art!!!

Contest begins Thursday, March 26 at midnight EST and ends Sunday, March 29 at 8:00 pm EST

Dominos in Disguise

I wanted to show you what I've been working on for the spring summer months. This ordinary game piece is taken to a new level. I plan to consign a few of these as well since they are pretty artistic and I think they would fit right in at the Studio and Art Bar. What do you think????

So I'm thinking about consigning my jewelry. I have an opportunity to work with a great little place in York, PA called The Studio and Art Bar. I'm thinking of putting a few of my pieces there to start, but I'm having a little trouble with pricing. The economy is so crappy right now that people aren't spending the way they normally would. I normally would charge anywhere from $65-$100 on some of these pieces. I need to account for the fact that it's a 40/60 split in the sale. I'm just wondering if that is too much??? Would you pay that for these beauties???? Any help is greatly appreciated!

I am also thinking of making a couple of unique scrabble tile chakra necklaces (with yoga sayings) on them. I have a some examples in my shoppe.

A few months back, I put a shout out to the artists at etsy to see if anyone would be willing to donate items for a giveaway at my friend's yoga studio. The night of yoga was dedicated to raising money for a local food pantry here in North Coventry, PA. Low and behold, one wonderful artist donated a gorgeous framed print and some note cards. I was just going through my favorites on Etsy and came across her. I never did thank her properly, so Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. We wound up collecting lots of food and money donations and everyone had a great night.

I gently urge you to check out her shop. The name is The Painted Lily and here are a few of my favorites from her. The work just creates a sense of peace and calm. She is very talented!

So back in January, I posted about blogging for beads, where Artbeads will periodically send me products to try and create with and all I have to do is blog about my creations. I wasn't totally happy with what I created for them so I re-created the necklace and I think it's much better. The necklace is a little bit longer and will look perfect over the top of a higher neck shirt or layered with other jewelry.
So here is the description of the product again:

This blue and green 40mm Millefiori Murano glass focal bead is highlighted by dangling a clear round crystal and peridot bicone crystals. A silver-plated elongated chain is used. Sterling silver lobster claw clasp. Measures 30 inches. If you aren't familiar with Murano Glass, it's beautiful, handmade glass and has been a famous product of the Venetian island of Murano for centuries.

Wedding In A Box Magic Moments Bridal Show

Here are a few snapshots of our fantastic vendor table at the Raddison Valley Forge Magic Moments Bridal show today. This was our first show as Wedding in A Box and everyone seemed so excited and receptive to our services...especially the personal attention we can provide to our brides and their bridal parties. This was a pretty large show with a lot of vendors so we are looking forward to some smaller venues where we can talk more personally with the brides. The day was filled with a lot of excitement for us and all the positive feedback we received. This is surely going to be an awesome ride.
